Bridgeport car accident leads to arrest in Stamford Brooks Brothers scam

November 12, 2018

STAMFORD — Police say a single-car accident into a tree over the weekend in Bridgeport led to the third arrest in a $30,000 Brooks Brothers refund scam.

Investigator Sean Coughlin said Bridgeport police ran a check on the driver, Kyler Williams, 26, of Yaremich Drive, and discovered he had a Stamford arrest warrant for first-degree larceny, second-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny.

Two other men, former manager Alonzo Days, 25, of Bridgeport, and Sha Sha Callaghan, 23, of Stamford, were previously arrested for conspiring to take money from the story by issuing refunds for thousands of dollars of items that had never been purchased, police said.

Coughlin said Days issued Williams $11,124 in refunds for clothing he never purchased. Callaghan was also charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny as well as second-degree larceny because police say his account was credited with nearly $15,000 worth of refunds from the Stamford Brooks Brothers store.

Coughlin said a total of $27,590 was stolen from the store while 26 fraudulent store returns were processed by Days between May and October 2017.
